    This is a very comfortable property located in one of the best spots of the old city overlooking the entire lake. The amenities and 180 degree view from our room can't be beaten. The owners are absolutely lovely and very helpful. Would definitely recommend this property.

    The streets in this part of the old city are a bit narrow and hard to park a car or drive thru.

    View View View Helpful and friendly owners Big balcony Spacious apartment

    Can be a bit noisy at night due to noise coming from old town, but this is not something they can control

    Good value for money

    Please note that there is no parking at all. We had to park in an unsecured area far from the hotel. It was very difficult to find the hotel and almost impossible to get there by car. Credit cards are not accepted, only cash.

    You probably won't find another Hotel in Ohrid with such a stunning view of the lake and the old town. Also note the low prices... There is nothing to add to the description given on The owner is such a generous host, you won't believe it unless you experience it yourself. He invited us into his own garden on the national day (Aug. 2nd) for a garden party and took us on a private boat trip with his own boat a few days before we left. My girlfriend and me booked a double bedroom and we were more than happy having chosen Villa Rustica for our stay of eight days.

    The noise from late-night parties sometimes impaired our sleep but this is hardy the owner's fault. In high season, sometimes parties go on until 6.00 a.m. They mainly take place on the opposite side of the bay but unfortunately, the sound is carried very well by the water surface.

    We had a balcony in our room and the view was just perfect - you could see Ohrid Lake and the Old Town. The location was ideal, walking distance to the main street of Ohrid. The room was spacious and clean and in the kitchen we had everything that we needed.

    Access by car was difficult due to the narrow streets and lack of parking spaces. We parked our car by the upper gate and walked from there. But the owner was so nice that he helped pick up our luggage with his own car.

    On the top of all the excellent comments about Villa Rustica our experience there still exceded our expectations! The complimentary private boat tour with the extraordinary host Mr.Dimche - Superb! The complimentary party for all guests celebrating the Macedonia's official Holiday Ilinden - Exceptional touching! Just great - we'll be back for sure and will be recommending Villa Ristica to everybody everywhere.

    1. If that could help at all the efforts of the owner Mr.Dimche with Ohrid authorities - the noise at night time from the discoteques across the bay is unaccaptable.All that should be controlled - finally the Ohrid Lake is famous for its tranquility and beauty. Please, don't destroy that cosmopolitan touristic jewel for the financial interest of a bunch of people without sense for the natural gifts. 2.Parking is a little bit of a problem, but that's understandable - it was probably the busiest weekend in Ohrid.

    It was one of the best places that we stayed in our balkan trip. Prices are fair enough, facilities were clean and comfortable and our room had a balcony where you can see a magnificent lake view. Staff was friendly and helpful. Kitchen was also useful.

    Location was excellent but there were lots of stairs so you should climb bit. Wifi wasn't good enough.

    Accommodation has a good view, nice garden and friendly staff. Great location, close to downtown and lake. Unfortunately we spent here only two days.

    Parking place could be a problem, narrow streets in Old town.

    Beautiful place, felt like staying in the room all day with such a great view and gentle breeze . The family owned business is exceptional friendly and well run, nothing is too much trouble for them

    very friendly staff, excellent location, breathtaking view from a great balcony, just 3 minutes walk to the lake, parking available just outside of the apartment, i strongly recommend it to anyone interested in visiting Ohrid!

    Everything - the view is to die for, the central location is perfect, the cleanliness is as it should be, the size of rooms just right and wifi actually works!

    The mattress in the double room is far too hard - needs a soft mattress topper urgently!

    The view is amazing!! We were on the ground floor, or the lowest floor of the house and still was breath taking. The room was clean and the bathroom and kitchen too. There's only one or two rooms sharing the bathroom so you hardly see anyone. Internet worked great and the best value for money. The location is almost perfect, just up the hill and few minutes from the old town. The owners were great, friendly father and son!

    We liked everything. Too bad we couldn't stay longer.

    the owner was really friendly and extremely helpful - I felt welcome as soon as I arrived... he even had a map in the room, and helped with sightseeing and things to do without hesitation. The room and balcony had great views across the lake - so good that I settled in for the evening on the balcony with wine and homemade salad, taking in the view rather than heading out to a restaurant

    while the seersucker sheets looked retro-chic, they were a bit scratchy for sleeping !

    Great and convinient location, view from the studio is wonderfull, it's clean and very well equiped. According to Ohrid standards-one of the best value for money.

    Breathtaking panoramic views of the Lake and town from every room, very nice and super-friendly owner really keen on all surrounding tourists attractions and always ready to give you some really helpful tips about them (even to arrange some boat trips and etc) with indeed fluent English. There is two free private parking spaces beside the main door and a wonderfull small patio in front of the building with great variety of nice flowers. Walking distance to all main sights. Shared fully equipped kitchen where you can cook some breakfast of dinner if you don’t mind cooking on vacation. Really perfect experience. Wish we could have stayed longer. If you’ll arive to Villa Rustica by car in a night (as we did) there is a tip – enter an old town through Upper Gate (despite you GPS will say - take Abas Emin str. turn from the main Boulevard Turistichka str. and follow it to the gate), park you car at a square just after the gate, take you navigation equipment with you and explore the right location of villa by foot (good idea is to study some sattelite pictures of an area and direct location of villa before the trip). You need to do all those maneuvers because if you try to break through the old-city streets on car without proper training and knowledge - one wrong turn and there is no place to turn back (especially if you have realy long and/or wide vehicle). Driving in a Ohrid’s old town definitely needs preliminary survey. The good point is that the villa is just 300 meters from the Gate – it won’t take long to find it.

    The room and the bathroom could be larger – but not a big problem indeed.

    I arrived at Villa Rustica feeling sick & what a wonderful calm, clean place to recuperate with such a beautiful view from the balcony. Close to the centre of the old town, but in a quiet location.

    Amazing views from the balcony of the lake and the city. Situated on a quiet street in the old town (driving there might seem intimidating to those not used to such narrow roads, the more so as the GPS could easily fail you), very close to the main attractions. Parts of the furniture looked a bit old, but the room was very clean and comfortable. Although, thanks to the wonderful people I met in Ohrid, I've basically spent only a few hours in the villa, I definitely recommend it.

    Location in the old city was spectacular-the view from the balcony and the quiet were relaxing. The villa is lovely and well maintained. I will likely return to this location the next time I am in Ohrid.

    It would have been nice to be given the wi-fi password upon check-in rather than having to hunt someone down the next day for that information.

    A fantastic location and view - the room had a terrace. I would stay again.

    The bathroom was really small and quite old with a very loud extract fan.
